    Unfortunately I'm addicted to Cytosport's Cookie's N' Creme flavor (which has sucralose), but I've used the Jay Robb chocolate whey in the past and definitely found it palatable.

    Single-source egg and whey proteins without sucralose are pretty easy to come by. For example, I like ON Gold Standard Natural Whey.

    What I was looking for was something like this, sans sucralose. So far as I can tell, complex protein blends taste like BCAAs (super bitter), which leads manufacturers to sweeten the hell out of them. When they use a natural sweetener, the label has to read "gainer" because of the calorie count involved, thus sucralose.

    I just make my own mix at Protein Factory and don't add any sweetener. To be fair, I don't make any shakes that are just protein so I have no idea whether that would be palatable, but I believe Stevia is one of the options if you need sweetener.
